Since I can count on a plant dying every now and then, I don't want one rare plant because it would eventually mean no plants. But I don't want lots of plants either because I have neither the space nor the motivation they need. I've been down that path a few times with various kinds of plants and hope I never do it again. My orchid collection, which once approached 100, is down to 4 and my Nep collection is down to 1. I have several Sarrs and VFTs too, but that'd OK because they live outside and spend half the year asleep. If my sunny growing space weren't so limited, I'd have more of them. I went a little crazy trading for cacti last fall, but they prefer being ignored, which makes them ideal for me.
